12 ounce bottle. Black liquid topped by a medium-sized creamy tan head. Light espresso roasted malt aroma. Subtle smoked malt flavor with hints of cocoa, burnt caramel and currants. Tasty and flavorful without the harshness of most Imperial Stouts. Creamy mocha finish.

Draft to snifter. Looks good; black with beige lacing. Smells and tastes sweet and malty with notes of chocolate and a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Solid beer.

The 72 pours dark with a brown head that leaves little lacing. The aroma is fairly weak but malty chocolate goodness and molasses. The flavor is much better than the aroma. Overall this was a nice little surprise. I hope to enjoy more in the future.

dark black brew with light tan head. nice body thick enough with a flavor of wheat vegetable and then some cherry. bit of smoke wafts in after time but a hint of the first hit kinda sets it back . some saucy gravy (worcestershire) in aroma.

Black pour with brown to red hue, pretty dark cocoa colored head a sixteenth of an inch high. Smells like rich chocolate and coffee. Thin mouthfeel with next to no carbonation. Flavors of maple, caramel, and bourbon maybe? Clean finish with sweet flavors left over. Overall pretty light and kind of sweet, syrupy stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown pour with a medium tan head.
aroma is cocoa and vinous dark fruit.
Flavour is dark fruits, semi sweet and milk chocolate.
Body is a touch light, but the 7% is blended in very well. Some herbal/bakers chocolate bitterness in the finish.

Bottle. 2/15/13. Pours dark brown-black with a fast to fade light brown head. Aroma is dark chocolate, hints of dark fruit, sweet and just a bit spicy. Taste is nice; creamy, smooth, brown sugar, chocolate, roast, some coffee. Malt for days with very little bitterness; not many IBUs here. Tastes even more mild than the 7.2% ABV. This I like this. Smooth mouth feel but with a coating sensation. Very little lacing. Well crafted.
